    PowerUp: Protecting the Laptop Screen and Keyboard

    Broken screen due to staple
     
     
    Dear Students:
     
    We already had one laptop screen break this year when a student put stapled papers on the keyboard, closed the lid and zipped the bag. The staple put enough pressure on the screen and cracked the LCD.
     
    How can we protect the screen and keyboard?. 
     
    Do not place pencils, erasers, stapled papers, ear buds, paper clips, keys, USB flash drives, or any other object on the keyboard. If you forget it is there and close the lid, it will damage the laptop!
